EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Guilford, CT

Pros: Great New England town...

Cons: Could do better with decision making in govenment, a bit slow and not very progressive, or creative.

This is a good place to live, work, belong to a community.

General info: Worth checking out if you want to live in a town that isn't run over by malling and yet has all the benefits of modern life...
